The decomposed granite trails in near Granite Basin Lake were absolutely perfect for mountain biking this week. While most of the other trails around Prescott were still somewhat muddy (some even still have snow on them!), trails 349, 350 & 351 are in super shape. They are tacky enough that you can really feel the grip of your tires on them.
Seven of us went out for about an hour and a half of medium paced riding the other day. We climbed up 350 and took 349 to the west. That portion of 349 is a ton of fun. The singletrack swoops and scoops down through the pines, where you sometimes feel the bark of a tree graze against your shoulder as you pass. From there we took the 351 across and back up to the east end of 349 at Cayuse. We followed the 349 back up to the top where we came into it off the 350 earlier, then pointed our bikes back down the 350 and back to our cars.
Getting out for even a brief outdoor adventure on my bike is always such a treat!
